Once you have filtered your results review the items.  To keep track of your selections, use the PIN icon to keep your selections in a folder,  You can review your selections later  and  email your choices to yourself or save in a bibliographic software tool once your research is complete.

Clicking on a result will in the case of a journal article give you full text or in some cases the information on the print version.

Parliament of Canada

Parliamentary debates online

There are 2 places to look for this.  One is for the historical debates up to the 1st session of the 35th Parliament (January 17, 1994 to February 2, 1996.  This may be found at:  http://parl.canadiana.ca/.  The other, which carries the information forward to the present time is at:  http://www.parl.gc.ca/Default.aspx?Language=E.  In both cases, you need decide if you want the debates of the House of Commons or the Senate and you need to decide which session of Parliament you want to search.  It's a bit awkward but eventually you get used to searching it.
